    hello alexk49,
    you were surprised too. that was according to the DDASS employee i spoke to. what i really don't understand is this. they would accept a filipino nurse if she or he is married to a french national or here in france on a refuge status but they won't accept if we are not on either of the two requirements but the fact still remains that the diploma of the accepted candidate & that of the unaccepted candidate are the same no matter where in the philippines he or she graduated from. according to the DDASS philippine diploma does not qualify in their country oh well what can we do there are a lot of filipino nurses here in france & if only given the opportunity to work as a nurse we can help fill up vacant nursing positions here.

    I think if already in France with a work permit you shouldn't have any problems. Issue will arise if wanting a work permit because EU states have to employ someone from own country first then EU before the rest of the world and employer has to prove that you are the right one for the job

    Hi guys,

    I'm an americaine licensed RN in CA and been living in Paris since February 2008. I'm actually going through the french requirements to get my licence here in France and is willing to go back to school to obtain it. I have applied for a nursing school here (IFSI) and I have an written exam in 2 weeks f (culture generale domaine sanitaire et sociale). Has any foreigners like myself has taken these entrance exam and can give me some info? Will my exam be exactly the same as with a french citizens taking it? Is it graded exactly the same as they would for a french native? Any tips at all? The subject is so broad and I have no idea what topics I must concentrate on. Any help is appreciated.

    And for those that have questions about how to apply to a nursing school here and the requirements, feel free to ask me.

    Thanks!!

    You may already know about this site, but I'd guess you'd be more likely to reach others who've been through the exam here: http://www.infirmiers.com/

    Bon courage et bonne chance!

    This is a great website for info. Thanks Fred_Ide for your info. One more question though, I got my BSN in the Philippines and have worked here in the US for 18 years. Did a masteral level as a nurse anesthesia student but with 3 hrs of sleep Monday to Friday (& I had to stop working from my job with no income for 18 months and moved to Connecticut) and with small children, I lasted for 18 months out of the 29 months program and moved back to the SF bay area. I was wondering if I will get a UK license if they will give me an RN license in France or probably go to nurse anesthesia school (but I doubt if they will let me do that either, huh?) but my biggest hurdle would be to speak francaise. I am working in the 2 of the top 10 best hospitals in the US (on the west coast) and my clinical skills are excellent - patients with continuous hemo-hemo filtration (CVVH), intra-aortic balloon pump, ventricular assist devices and ECMO (external end-organ machine similar to bypass but continuous). Free education for your kids, good health insurance and good retirement would be better to high pay. :wink2:

    How are you planning on getting work permit? just having a UK RN license will not assist in work permit and seeing as France is part of the EU they have to employ from within the EU first. You will also still have to meet French requirements so getting a UK license will not help. Once fluent in French I suggest contacting some hospitals in the areas you would like to live and see what the current situation is regarding assistance with work permits

    Hi, my name is Elizabeth, I want to be a nurse and I will be starting college soon. I'm pretty confident in my knowledge of the requirements here in California but I don't want to study here.

    I speak French well and I would like to do all of my studying in France. All of it, no American university, if possible. I found this program called "CampusFrance", but really don't know how to get my degree.

    I've already seen what it takes to be a French nurse if I already had my license here, but that doesn't help since I have almost no experience. If it helps, I would've worked for 2 years as a dental assistant by the time of my high school graduation.

    Hi Elizabeth

    If you go to France to train as a nurse be aware that if accepted International fees will be very expensive and you may not be allowed to work or have very limited working hours which may not support you. If you do get to that stage then when you qualify you will always be classed as a foreign trained nurse and will have to meet that BON/BRN requirements. Also may not give you leave to remain in the EU and work once qualified.

    I would really consider what you plan to do as living overseas on a student visa can be very expensive

    It seems to be really difficult for a nurse
